Sometimes I just don’t feel I can say what I want to say.  Usually that’s when you get a video.  Back in my MySpace blogging days, you’d get a goofy quiz or some list of oddities.  Today I’ll opt for lists.

One thing I like about blogging with GoDaddy’s QuickBlogcast is it gives the blogger/webmaster access to all sorts of detailed statistics.  For example, here’s a list of the ten most viewed items in the Crisis Chronicles Online Library during the past seven days:

1. Silent Answer (by Christina M. Brooks)
2. Heaven is so far of the Mind (by Emily Dickinson)
3. The Red Wheelbarrow (by William Carlos Williams)
4. Small Miracles (by John Dorsey)
5. Cleveland: The Rectal Eye Visions [#3] (by d.a. levy)
6. Gods (by Walt Whitman)
7. Macho Sex (by Cheryl A. Townsend)
8. I Sing The Blues For You Today (by Joy Leftow)
9. The Muse Lottery (by John Dorsey)
10. Bhagavad-Gita (Chapter 5)

Here are the ten most viewed in the past 30 days (27 November thru 27 December):

1. Keyed Up (by Mister Eeee)
2. Macho Sex (by Cheryl A. Townsend)
3. 4’33” (by John Cage)
4. Hot Date (by Dorothy Porter)
5. The Muse Lottery (by John Dorsey)
6. Songs of Innocence (by William Blake)
7. A Word Is Dead (by Emily Dickinson)
8. Love Song (by William Carlos Williams)
9. Silent Answer (by Christina M. Brooks)
10. Remember (by Christina Rossetti)

Here are the ten most viewed entries since 19 August, when GoDaddy started using their fancy new statistics tool:

1. Sensation (by Arthur Rimbaud)
2. Hymen (by H.D.)
3. Macho Sex (by Cheryl A. Townsend)
4. Sarcophagi (by Kevin Eberhardt)
5. to jim lowells goldfish (by d.a. levy)
6. The Ash Tree (by Philip Metres)
7. The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock (by T.S. Eliot)
8. Neon (by Michael Salinger)
9. Cleveland Undercovers (by d.a. levy)
10. Every Truth Has Its Neuter (by Kathy Ireland Smith)

The new statistics tool does not include views before 19 August.  So here are the top twelve most viewed entries of all time (since I created the blog-based Online Library on 18 June 2008), according to the old statistics tool (which is still available to me, though GoDaddy seems to suggest it is less reliable):

1. Hymen (by H.D.)
2. Macho Sex (by Cheryl A. Townsend)
3. Sensation (by Arthur Rimbaud)
4. A White Heron (by Sarah Orne Jewett)
5. Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, Preface and Canto I (by Lord Byron)
6. The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock (by T.S. Eliot)
7. Songs of Innocence (by William Blake)
8. Song of Myself (by Walt Whitman)
9. Le Bâteau Ivre [The Drunken Boat] (by Arthur Rimbaud)
10. Prayer (by H.D.)
11. The Ash Tree (by Philip Metres)
12. Muse (by Dianne Borsenik)

Click any title to go to that entry.  A lot of great work appears on these lists – but a lot of great work does not.  At some point, I’ll post a list of what I believe are
the most undeservedly overlooked pieces in the Crisis Chronicles Online Library.  It may be controversial.
